Logo and jerseys.

I like the new coyote logo, but the colours seem so...generic. Like a Carolina Hurricanes jersey that got wet. They've really lost that Southwestern style which made their look so unique.

Of course, this new change allows me to once again mention one of my favourite sites: NHL Uniforms.

My first impression is that they remind me of the old "CCCP" uniforms the old Soviet teams wore.

My thought exactly - I actually came over to post that

I like the Logo though I think it looks more like a Fox than a Coyote

I love the new logo, I like the shirts, but they should use them with their Aztec style shorts.

I love them apart from the logo. It's too detailed, much how minor-league teams go for that overcomplicated, cartoony style. Ah well. The colours and stripes look great.

A better logo would have been a red (or white, for the road unis) silhouette of a coyote's head, without all the detail.

I miss the old uni's. They were awesome in their complete wackiness. And they were nowhere near as bad as several other teams have had in the past (on the ugly scale, not wackiness).

Agreed.

You have to understand the southwest to understand that the logo relects indian art. This is just bland.

I like the change a lot. The jerseys are much more classic-looking (especially the away lace-up jersey - oh wait, I guess that's the home jersey now, since home/away colours are swapped for every team starting this year), and the howling dog, while not super-amazing, is leaps and bounds ahead of the Post Modern Picasso Desert Dog they've been using.

Wow. That is quite a bit toned down, almost to the point of retro, but it's still very nice.

Weren't the players complaining about the old jerseys having issues with the neckline being too restratining or something like that? At least when they first moved from Winnipeg?

Actually, I still like the Jets jersey better than either of the Coyotes ones now that I think about it. I think I still have one too...

They should've just done a total remake of the Johnny Cash-voiced coyote from the Simpsons.

So, how many teams are using red and black this season?

Buffalo
New Jersey
Ottawa
Carolina
Chicago
Calgary
Phoenix


Great. It's a good thing the uni designers in the NHL are so creative. Damn, I wish the Sabres had never made the change to the most generic color scheme in the NHL and I really wish Golisano would hurry up and change them back.

I'm not fussy over the new logo (not sure if it's better or worse than the old one), but their overall look is much better than the old uniforms.

As far as the black and red unis go, it's almost like the Teal Takeover Of Sports In The 90s. Or something.

How many years have they been in Phoenix, anyway? Do they really need a new uni now? They're ought to be a minimum you have to use your first uniform for. Besides, I liked the old unis. As others have said, they certainly reflected their locale.

Are white uniforms going to be used on the road just for this season, or permanently? I remember them switching for, like, half a season a few years ago.

They have been in Phoenix for 8-9 years now. They are going for the new uniforms now because they are moving into their new arena in December, so they are taking on a "new identity" (maybe this means they will get past the 1st round of the playoffs).

From what I understand, all teams will wear white on the road this season....

Ehhh. They went generic -- too generic. The coyote head itself isn't bad, but does the color scheme have to be so plain? Right off the top of my head, I can think of a canine-themed minor league jersey that's far superior.

Of course, REALLY cool jerseys say "Moncton" on them.
